Charlotte Champion is a French sculptor who lives and works in Paris. She decided to switch to creative field and become a sculptor after a DEA in Modern History in Sorbonne (Paris IV) in 1990’s.
While she was training in studios of Nicolas Poussin and Jonathan Hirschfeld she started working in clay and making portraits and nudes. Later she become interested in the animal and vegetal world.
Her favorite genre is sculpture and preferred material is bronze, but she also works with design and furniture objects and uses plexiglas, wood, resin in her creative process.
She makes fantastic animalistic sculptures that come straight from the world of children tales and urban legends. I like the dynamism of forms she creates and the interactivity of her artworks. Her sculptures are monumental and very intimate at the same moment. Sculptures are telling you stories or keeping silence – it’s all up to you or the moment or the atmosphere. It’s the whole surrealistic world that goes lively just in front of your eyes: butterflies start to twirl, cats jump around and the elephants are in balance like acrobats on their metal pedestals (made of stainless steel, steel, brass or bronze). I adore that her artworks come in different scales and can easily fit to any type of home or garden to accompany your life.
And she has great and creative sense of humor.
